Religious Landscapes of Los Angeles

A two-week institute for thirty school teachers on religious diversity in America, using Los Angeles as a case study.


Our summer two-week institute (July 16-27, 2018) seeks to provide the tools K-12 educators need to teach about religious diversity in a manner that draws attention not only to differences that distinguish religious traditions from one another, but also commonalities that give us a deeper appreciation for shared ethical norms and values. In order to foster a diverse and inclusive environment, it is important to understand the ways in which humans express themselves religiously. We hope to bring 30 teachers from across America to Los Angeles, where they will work closely with scholars of religion, meet with local religious leaders, visit houses of worship, explore the life of the city, and engage in service learning with the purpose of developing their own curriculum projects.
